White felspathic stoneware, shaped oval teapot with a sliding cover, and molded and applied relief decoration and blue trim, which is attributed to the Sowter and Company pottery (1800-late 1820s) of Mexborough, Yorkshire. The domed cover has a finial with a center 'shell' flanked by two rams' horns with their bases outlined in blue over a band of vertical acanthus leaves and bell flowers; and a section of the gallery with a scalloped top, under which scallop is a star in each of the linked circles, which completes the gallery oval when the cover slides into position. The sloped shoulder has a band of inverted scrolling foliage, acanthus leaves and bell flowers. The shaped body has four upper panels, two with applied sprig molding, divided by foliate and acanthus leaf molded columns, all outlined in blue: one panel has a woman leaning with her left arm over an urn on a plinth in front of an obelisk with an urn by her feet, and the reverse has a woman facing an urn on a plinth with a shield on the base and an urn by her feet. The lower section of each panel has four vertical acanthus leaves over the shaped blue-edged flat base. The curved spout has beading, floral sprig, and acanthus leaf with furl on the top of the blue-outlined rim; the blue-outlined D-shaped handle has two furls.
